Pip says:
I couldn't do this shot correctly without betraying my technique, which makes me all the more impressed with @jonshaaf (and @brandon, for pulling off the effect way better than I could).

I tried.

Are you reflecting in the menu out front of the Chinaman restaurant? That's how I'd do it, I reckon. Nicely done!

brandon says:
So well done. I was sweating by the time I finished mine it took so many takes. And yeah, he probably did it in one.

did he ever reveal his secret for how he pulled off all those amazing images? I can't remember.. I hope he did so I can steal them all.

tedford says:
i'm going with the popular consensus - wizardry.

Andrew says:
You're a wizard just like @jonschaaf

This turned out nicely.

I'm guessing it has to do with the amount of light reflected off the glass and how dark/opaque the background behind you is

I love this shot and the original. Such great stuff. I wish I had done this in 07.

Jonschaff's technique involved selling his soul. So yeah, @Brandon, you might sweat a little...

GrowWithTheFlow says:
I'd say you did very well...

Presto Beardo says:
@jonschaaf never gave up his secret, I remember people asking him at the 07 throwdown, and he would refuse

A lot of katakana in that Japanese

zackle says:
I know his secret, but I wish I didn't. It's a heavy burden to carry and I must carry it alone.

zackle says:
But damn, this is fantastic. Kudos.

Pip says:
@mackle Nope, he never told me (CURSES!!). This shot (and I think @Brandon's too) is of my computer screen, focused deep on the reflection of my lit self. I tried for an hour to make it look like jonschaaf's and couldn't get anywhere close. His setup is probably really simple, and it's just a combination of his particular gear, setting, and genius that makes it work for him so well.

Plus, great hair.

Pip says:
Also, I think he used different techniques for different shots, though having similar effects.

HE'S A WIZARD.

oh man I forgot about Jon Schaaff. He was good and much taller than anyone expected him to be.
